Special Calling

Ephesians 4 :1  As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.

 Some are seeking their “special calling.”  The idea of a special calling on our lives is based on this and one other verse in the scriptures.  These verses are misunderstood.  Our “calling” is the calling of God to join His family through His Son, Jesus.   This is God’s calling on our lives.  We are called to have an intimate relationship with God, the Father, Jesus, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Our walk with Him will go through many phases.  These phases are different ministries the Holy Spirit will equip and train use to do.  The mistaken idea of a special ministry for  our life limits our openness to the movement of the Holy Spirit.  Let us remain open to all areas God might choose to use us.
